    We have a new SBS 2008 server, which we have an application installed on, but
    their is a bug that means the application does not create/enable the listener

    When running a netstat -apo tcp there should be port 663 listening on, but it is not created, is their a way to create this manually?

    We have the port in the firewall/router, and in the advanced firewall in SBS
    2008, but it is not listening.

    No, we could open the port that is fine.

    However if you run a netstat -apo tcp, it will show what ports are listening
    for someting to connect, which is completely seperate to the firewall. The
    firewall allows traffic in, but does not create the applications ability to
    listen for its traffic, this is different.

    I spoke to the software vendor, they have seen this issue before, but this
    will not be fixed yet, as it will be in the next software update, there is a
    way to create a listener port, just cant remember how I have done it before,
    but that was under SBS 2003 not SBS 2008.

  3. Hello Dave,

    Thank you for posting here.

    According to your description, I understand that:

    An application fail to listen a specific port on the SBS 2008 sever.

    If I have misunderstood the problem, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    As the issue happen on a 3rd party application, I'd like to know whether
    you have the test to verify whether the application is compatible with the
    Windows Server 2008 (Windows Longhorn). If you are not sure about that,
    please contact the application provider to get more compatibility

    Moreover, for the existence of UAC (user account control) in Windows Server
    2008, I'd like to know how it works if you run the application as

    If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let me

    Best regards,
